  • Yes, I would go back!

Years ago, when it was Kastro's, it was one of my major bars to relax and enjoy the juke box. Of course, one could smoke, too. I made a 4 foot long barracuda in papier mache that hung from the ceiling. The di Maistre brothers ran the place and made everyone welcome, personally, even on crowded Saturday nights. Many happy hours were spent in this place. I hope my barracuda is still there. Anybody?

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
